GUAM - A ground guide at a construction site in Tumon sustained serious injuries when a dump truck ran him over.  Guam Fire Department Spokesperson Lieutenant Phil Camacho says medics were notified of the incident at 7:48 on Saturday morning and were on the scene within minutes.  When they arrived to Chamorrita Way off Fujita Road, Camacho says the man sustained possible fractures to his lower body as the dump truck struck and ran over the man's legs. The man was rushed to the Guam Memorial Hospital and an investigation will be launched at the construction site. It is anticipated that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be notified of the incident.

 

GMH nursing supervisor Jo Eustaquio says the 50 year-old man is in serious condition.
